President Joe Biden leads his predecessors in avoiding press conferences and interviews. After speeches before reporters he may answer one or two questions but then walks off leaving reporters without news. (AP News, January 9, 2022, by Aamer Madhani)

Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki said last November that the dearth of press conferences was a media problem rather than one for the America people. Psaki claimed Biden answered 20 to 30 questions a week in casual encounters with the press more than the 10 to 15 he might answer in a press conference.
